The school board voted in June to suspend Jeffrey Lamprecht as principal due to allegations of sexual misconduct with an underage female student. Teachers reported that students had come forward with allegations of inappropriate behavior.

Lamprecht has not been criminally charged and the state Bureau of Criminal Investigations considers the case closed, a report from the department said.

A dismissal hearing before the school board, initially set for August 21, was postponed indefinitely after Lamprecht’s attorney requested needed more time to prepare a case.

Northrop will continue superintendent duties in addition to his duties as interim principal.
